Steve Hackett: Genesis Revisited
Advertisement
Steve Hackett is renowned as an immensely talented and innovative rock musician. He was lead guitarist with Genesis as part of their classic line up with Gabriel, Collins, Banks and Rutherford, that produced acclaimed albums such as Selling England by the Pound (a favourite of John Lennon). With Steve's extraordinary versatility in both his electric guitar playing and his composing, he involves influences from many genres, including Jazz, World Music and Blues. He is equally adept in his classical albums that include renditions of pieces by composers from Bach to Satie, his own acoustic guitar compositions that have gained the admiration of many, including Yehudi Menuhin, and ambitious guitar/ orchestra albums such as A Midsummer Night's Dream, recorded with the Royal Philharmonic.
With Genesis, Steve's guitar playing produced some of the most memorable moments, from the sensitivity of his acoustic sound on Horizons and Blood on the Rooftops to the dramatic rock guitar solos of Firth of Fifth and Fountain of Salmacis. As he embarked on his solo career he developed his exceptional range, pushing musical boundaries into exciting areas, inventing new sounds and also techniques such as 'tapping'. His solo career went from strength to strength and the mid eighties not only saw the hit single Cell 151, but also the Steve Hackett and Steve Howe super group GTR, highly successful in America.
Genesis' induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in March 2010 stands as a testament to the enduring qualities of their music. Steve has always held a torch for the classic Genesis music. His Genesis Revisited II, a double CD, involves several iconic artists and contains many Genesis favourites. It was released in late October 2012. A Genesis Revisited worldwide tour involving Steve with a multi-talented band in 2013 has been followed by several Genesis Revisited tours by popular demand, most of which include both Genesis and solo numbers. Never one to rest on his laurels, Steve constantly blazes a trail with new material as an exhilarating and groundbreaking artist.
Following the success of his album Wolflight, The Night Siren, At The Edge Of Light, attained a strong place in the charts of both the UK and several other countries. He released the two studio albums, Under A Mediterranean Sky and Surrender Of Silence in one year as well as putting out a live album and his autobiography during the toughest part of the Covid time. He is now once again touring the globe. His talent and energy continues to be appreciated by people worldwide.
